A Green Gourmand
I find this to be a gourmand green. There is just something that is distinctly food in this fragrance that I can’t particularly pinpoint, but it just smells like food. My guess would be the wasabi note, but alas I’m not experienced enough in the world of perfumery to truly pick that out as the sole defining factor as there is quite a few other spices present in this fragrance. Maybe because of its food-like nature, this green happens to be a very dark green to me. Typically with greens there is usually a brightness to them, like newly budded leaves or fresh cut grass, but in this I find none. While dark though, there is nothing really overpowering about this scent at all, in fact there’s an almost airy quality to the fragrance. It’s kinda weird, almost ghostly. Like you walked in onto some kind of open-air ritual in progress, there’s a heaviness to the air that you walked into, but also the distinct note of the air itself. A smoke machine on a dance floor, you can see the smoke and you know it’s there but it doesn’t stop you from seeing your friends, or the DJ, or anything really, it just adds to the effect. Because of how deep yet airy this fragrance is I’d consider it a year-rounder. It’s light enough to be worn in the summer but also has enough heft to it from the spices and incense present in the fragrance that it can cut through the colder air. I really enjoy this fragrance but it is definitely a try before you buy kinda scent.
